Finally!! NJPW is back with the Destruction tour. After the marathon that was the G1 Climax tournament and several weeks off for the roster, everyone is back on the Road To Destruction. Tomorrow morning, live from Tokyo’s Korakuen Hall on NJPW World, Los Ingobernables de Japon will face off with CHAOS in the main event. It will be an elimination match, and the whole purpose of this is the build to Naito defending his G1 IWGP Heavyweight Championship shot against Ishii at King Of Pro Wrestling in October.
As we reported yesterday, Kenny Omega is injured and will miss almost all of the current Destruction tour. He is being replaced by Leo Tonga in all of the matches he was scheduled to compete in.
